Westport and Magical Mayo

Award-winning Westport is one of Ireland’s major tourist destinations, located in the south east corner of Clew Bay, an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean.  The town has many picturesque features – most notably its tree-lined flower decorated boulevard known as The Mall with several stone bridges over the Carrowbeg River.

Sunday – Day 1

Via the motorways we head north to the Kinmel Manor Hotel near to the town of Abergele, North Wales where we have an overnight stay.

Monday – Day 2

We head to the Holyhead Ferry Terminal for the early morning crossing to Dublin.  We then stop at Strokestown Park House – a 19th century estate containing the Irish National Famine Museum and a charming walled pleasure garden.  From there we continue our journey west to the Castlecourt Court Hotel in Westport, our base for 4 nights.

Tuesday – Day 3

This morning we head for the beautiful village of Leenane at the head of the Killary Harbour, Ireland’s only fjord, where we board our boat for a 90 minute cruise.  The views of the landscape are stunning as we cruise towards the mouth of the fjord.  Once back in Leenane we travel to Kylemore Abbey, the home of a community of Benedictine nuns since 1920.  The nuns have lovingly restored the abbey, Gothic church and the magnificent 6 acre Victorian walled garden which is divided in two by a beautiful mountain stream.

Wednesday – Day 4

We begin our day with a tour of Foxford Woollen Mills, traditional wool manufacturers since 1892.  We then head past Clew Bay to Achill Island – a region of ancient forests and bog lands that emerges at the Atlantic coast to dramatic effect.  Immense cliffs shelter nesting seabirds and the sea view are magnificent.

Thursday – Day 5

We spend the morning visiting Westport House where we board the Westport Train for an entertaining 50 minute guided tour of Westport town, Westport Harbour and Westport House Estate.  We then enjoy a 30 minute guided tour of Westport House itself, one of the jewels in the crown of Ireland’s historical family homes.  After our visit we enjoy free time in Westport.

Friday – Day 6

We depart the hotel and commence our journey home – we have one further attraction and that is the Museum of Country Life with its modern exhibition galleries set in grounds of Turlough Park House and surrounded by magnificent gardens.  We complete our journey to the Ireland’s south east corner and the Maldron Hotel on the outskirts of Wexford for a final overnight stay.

Saturday – Day 7

We take the early morning ferry crossing back across to South Wales, and from there we continue homeward bound.

About Our Tours

We have been operating tours and mini breaks around the U.K. and abroad for a number of years, and by far the most popular innovation that we have introduced in recent years, is to offer a virtually door to door service. Picking up as near as practically possible to your home in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire means you don’t have to worry about getting your luggage to the coach, and avoids the additional cost of having to use taxis.

By using our small fleet of mini-buses, we are able to keep the pick-up time to a minimum and get you on your tour coach and on your way as soon as possible. This way your holiday starts on the first morning. Once your holiday is over we will collect you again from the coach park and return you home.
